7:08am
7:09am
salad for lunch? well, if you don't remember, that may explain why you're packing on the pounds. in today's health watch seers good morning. a burger or salad for lunch? if you don't remember what you had it's prelunch but let's talk yesterday. if you don't remember what you had that may explain you're gaining weight. in today's healthwatch dr. kim mulvihill looks at a small study that suggests there is a big connection between
7:10am
memory and snacking. lunch around the bay area, what was it like for you? like a spicy curry i don't know of name of it. but it was definitely hot. >> i don't know what the dressing is. some sort of vinaigrette. >> herb vinaigrette. >> reporter: what did you have for lunch yesterday? >> do you remember? >> pasta. >> pasta. >> reporter: now a new study suggests if you don't remember what you ate for lunch, the more likely you'll pig out at snacktime. british researchers fed identical lunches to 29 female students. some were asked to multitask as they ate. others were asked to focus closely on what they were eating. an hour later, the students were presented with a plate of cookies. those who focused on their lunch ate half as many snacks. so the next time someone asks you what you ate for lunch -- >> double cheeseburger, bacon, mushrooms. the works! [ laughter ] >> reporter: -- remember, it's not just the food that fills you up. it's your memory of it, as
7:11am
well. dr. kim mulvihill, cbs 5 healthwatch. all right. so dr. kim has some advice for us to enhance your memory of a meal. she says eat it and enjoy it. also, don't multitask while you're eating. that means no computer, no watching tv, no phone, no work while you're eating lunch. these are all distractions that keep from you mindful eating. yeah, guilty. i'm guilty of that. >> something else to remember. >> oh, well. i know. you hear all these diet plans and someday i'll take that advice. meantime, it is a good day to get out and do some exercise if you did have a bad lunch yesterday, right? >> only if you remember what the weather was yesterday. >> oh!! come on. you know? i just don't have room in my brain for all that. >> too much data. >> today's decent? >> yes. we'll be looking for cooler temperatures across the bay the next couple of days. nice warmup this week after a fog-free 4th of july. we see the fog laying in there today across the bay area. it will be slow to go at the
7:12am
beach and probably lingering into the afternoon hours. the cooling trend has already begun and we'll see temperatures down out of the triple digits out of 90s today for much cooler temperatures across the bay area. and that trend will continue through the week as the onshore breeze is back and, of course, as you know that means those low clouds and fog deck that you would expect this time of year. for the afternoon, we'll look for partly cloudy skies inland, cooler temperatures there. mid- to upper 80s for the warmer locations. partly foggy at the bay. we'll see some afternoon clearing but still temperatures on the cool side. mid-70s likely to prevail with mostly foggy conditions and very cool at the coast. upper 50s to low 60s. and this pattern looks like it will probably be in place here for the next week or so as the onshore flow continues. cooling fog pattern will prevail here through the week. temperatures continue to drop. we'll be down into the low 80s to upper 70s out across the
7:13am
interior here by midweek. and i really don't see any warmup on the way at least not for the next week or so. this pattern change will continue as mentioned through the week and we can anticipate our temperatures throughout the area to continue to drop into the mid-70s by midweek for the interior which means upper 50s here at the coast as the low cloud cover will definitely be thickening up across the bay. and you would expect that type of weather pattern for this time of year as again we will see it continue through the week and into next weekend with mid- to upper 70s prevailing for the warmer locations. out at the ballpark this afternoon we'll look for partly cloudy skies, temperatures in the low 60s to upper 50s through game time. so you picking a winner yet there, jim. >> i am. >> who will that be. >> tim lincecum with a two hit shutout with the mets. >> we'll have to wait and see. >> that mysterious voice is jim zeier.
7:14am
we are going to talk with him in a moment. east bay residents may play a crucial role in building a system that can predict earthquakes. stanford scientists say about 500 citizen volunteers along the hayward fault are now being recruited. the idea is to install mini -- oh, that's a tough word -- seismometers in their home computers. they work with a mac or pc. the program already has its first volunteer. >> if something comes out of this in terms of early monitoring or early warning systems for earthquakes, i'd love to be able to tell my kids, hey, i was part of that. >> researchers will expand this network to southern california, utah, pacific northwest and alaska. tech giants google and facebook trying to increase their share of the social media pie with new features. jim stier here with common sense media with how that may affect our kids online. good morning, jim. >> hey, anne. how are you? >> good. we just heard this big announcement from facebook talking about how they are
7:15am
going to use skype now. tell us your thoughts on that. they just unveiled it. >> these guys are in a big battle right now. people should under sta that from an economic stand that -- people should really understand that from an economic standpoint. facebook announced skype to do video chat on facebook and it's one-to-one video chat which you can share with a friend at a time and it's going to become a big deal. i don't think there is any question that young people in particular like doing video chats but you're going to have to be very careful about how much data you allow facebook to have because this will actually increase the amount of data you give them and it will also lead to stuff that -- where people adults and kids put stuff on video that you wish they hadn't done. >> definitely. >> and will regret later on. that's one thing with the facebook-skype partnership that we are going to see more and more. the second thing is google announced a new service recently called google plus which is essentially a direct
7:16am
challenge to facebook. i mean, these guys are the big two giants of this field right now. they are really battling each other economically. they do not always get along very well and they are now -- you are going to see google plus competing with facebook. >> certainly i heard less about google plus than the big facebook announcement. what do we need to know about that? >> first of all we haven't formally reviewed it yet at common sense media but you can go to commonsense.org soon and see what it is. essentially google is going to set up circles which are like facebook friends circles. they claim it's going to be more private and you're going to more specifically choose who your friends are and control information sharing. big issue here for parents and for all of us is privacy. how much information do you want to give away? how much information do you want your kids to give away? and quite frankly what age should your kids start being on facebook or google plus in the first place? >> yeah. you shared that with us what you're thinking teenaged? >> at the earliest. one of the things is you to, first of all, there are laws
7:17am
that -- by law they are not supposed to be on facebook until they're 13. and we don't let our 13-year- old on facebook. remember, kids are very socially and emotionally vulnerable at this age and that's a platform that when used unwisely which it often is, can lead to social emotional and even cognitive development issues. set limits and age limits. there are 7.5 million kids under the age of 13 on facebook today. those kids should not be on facebook! parents need to be involved. teachers need to understand this. >> let's put it in a nutshell again. you're concerned about that, that they will share things that later on could come back to haunt them? >> right. >> is certainly a concern. >> predators. >> predators, cyberbullying. you need to understand the technology as parents. you have to set clear limits on age and how much time your kids can spend on those and you have
7:18am
to be very careful about the privacy settings. >> when it comes to understanding the technology, it seems like it will be easier when you're looking at this skype in facebook. apparently skype is going to be easier to use in facebook than skype is on its own. >> correct. and i would tell you that skype in facebook is just one element. it's getting complicated now for all of us. >> i'm intimidated. >> take it slow. set clear limits. understand the technology. i mean, technology is moving so quickly here in the bay area and in silicon valley. but that doesn't mean it's necessarily good for your kids. and you need to be very careful. and that's what i would urge people to do. common sense.org lays this all out. you can go there and find out tech tips but ultimately as a parent you have to use your own common sense and you have to set clear limits and all we're going to see is more of this. but the one thing i would remind you is, don't let your kids sit on it for hours a day. as jim bernard just told us, we are going to have a beautiful, beautiful weekend. your kids should not be inside on their facebook account for
7:19am
five hours all day sharing pictures with people! get out and enjoy the nice weather that jim promised us this weekend. >> jim stier from common sense media thanks for joining you see. a soggy start to the ladies u.s. open. up next the golf pro taking the lead in the latest golf contest and baseball fans in the big apple do not fear the beard. find out why coming up next in sports. ,,

and google mapping. as they said, interesting, one of the factors they didn't flow there being considered in the mapping was climate. hydraulics, hydrology, et cetera. >> that would be taking place over the decades when you're talking about water rights. >> long term. certainly a major factor in there and causing grief for a lot of folks. >> that means they are going to have to do this process again? >> they will be talking about it for some time to come. how it will end up, we will only know in the fullness of time. we have a little better handle on today's weather where we can tell looking outside that we're in for a fog-bound day here and cooler temperatures across the bay. as you can see here, fog-bound across the city. the onshore flow is back. our big warmup of midweek is over and we'll be looking for more typical marine pattern to continue here through the week. still lots of sunshine across the interior as we look back to the bay from mount vaca. you see the tops of the fog bank. it's running about 2,000 feet
7:46am
overall throughout the area. so it will linger into the afternoon hours. we'll see tomorrow clearing here and there. partly cloudy to mostly sunny across the interior with temperatures today out of the 90s and into the mid- to upper 80s for the hot spots. we'll continue to cool with more fog expected in and around the bay here. looks like mid to upper 70s for the warmer east bay locations and at the coast they are going to hang onto the fog longer in the day. they will be looking at upper 50s to low 60s today. the pattern is changing to more of an onshore breeze here. and that will be our pattern right on through the week here. as a result, we will see more fog and cooler temperatures replace that heat wave through the week. so look for the clouds to be with us late night and early- morning hours and temperatures dropping on the peninsula into the mid- to low-70s at the beach into the upper 50s to low 60s again, low 80s in the south bay, san jose morgan hill, down in that direction. they will be near 80 today. but not as warm as we were last
7:47am
week. like wide cooling here through the east bay with mid- to upper 80s prevailing today. notice the 90s are dropping off the charts here and moving back into the east bay hills, it's closer to the bay, we'll be looking for upper 60s to low 70s and some low 80s into the tri-valley area here as the north bay once again also cooling into the upper 70s to low 80s for the warmer locations. and back into the 60s near the water. so this pattern will likely continue here through the week and we'll be looking at it into next weekend as the gradual cooldown continues nonstop with temperatures back into the mid- 70s here for the warmer locations. now, that will put us below normal for this time of year. but i don't see any big warmup headed our way in the near future. project by about midweek next -- probably by about midweek next week we'll see this pattern shift once again and i'd look for temperatures to creep back to near normal by that time. so in the meantime cooler temperatures here after a
7:48am
lovely week and a fog-free 4th, by the way. >> yeah. still beautiful. so fabulous. >> yes indeed. >> unfortunately i couldn't stay up for the fire? >> i had to be here for the morning show the next day but hope you all had a chance to enjoy. >> it was a good show. >> there were so many illegal fireworks going off around too. >> yeah. a lot of people had trouble sleeping that night but yeah, hopefully everybody had a chance to have some fun. and maybe do some grilling out. speaking of, how controversial can a pizza joint be? in this case, quite. the final concessions made as it served up a change. ,,
